Hingham resident Joanna Dutra of The Creative Confidant will be a keynote speaker alongside NBC News Anchor JC Monahan for the sold-out South Shore Conference for Women on Thursday October 28th at the Marriott Boston Quincy. This annual conference aims to inspire, connect, motivate, and move women through every stage along their path. In addition to the two keynote addresses, there are breakout panels throughout the day comprised of three relatable and accessible experts.

Joanna brings a 20-year background in advertising and product marketing for Fortune 500 companies to a personal level. Believing in the power of making creative connections, she works individually with corporate executives as well as groups to build their best personal brand.

Joanna is active in the community, running confidence workshops for adults as well as students. Summer workshops targeted rising 6th graders were fun and interactive, helping them identify their unique talents as they approach middle school. Other workshops include adult and youth sports teams, college students and creative collaborations with local businesses. People of all ages can harness their creativity; Joanna’s passion is finding ways of unveiling and illuminating strengths.

According to one local workshop participant: “Joanna speaks in colors, she is a visionary public speaker who weaves together analogies, anecdotes, and cultural touchstones to paint vivid pictures and masterfully illustrate ideas. She’s able to bring you out into the broader world as well as deeper within yourself.”

Joanna is also a frequent contributor to Forbes, where her vision of the world is a source of humor and positivity. Whether she’s making presentations or making people laugh, Joanna believes confidence is contagious. It's just a matter of finding the right view of yourself.

While the conference is sold out, the next opportunity to see Joanna is November 3rd at an event called Cooking with Confidence, a local collaboration with Hingham Chef Jennifer Mullen from The Whole Jam. For more details and links to Forbes articles, visit her website.
